Poem of the Day


On a Whim


On a whim

one Friday

I decided to paint

the house blue

and yellow stripes

the car black

with white spots

the furniture a

subtle pale pink

my reluctant wife

swirls of green

and the street trees

a striking dull gold


I’d just finished

painting the undercoat

on a  patch of sky

when the police arrived

so I decided to paint

them as well

magenta and orange

it wasn’t what they

were keen on

but it was all that

was left in the shed

out the back
